This story that I am going to tell you is very true, and should really be taken into consideration. Here is my experience.
It all started when I was over my friend Zack's house. (I'm going to censor out his name with another name) We were both watching T.V. At the time. His living-room is right next to a hallway. This hallway leads down to the bathroom and two bedrooms. We both started hearing strange noises at the end of the hallway which sounded like whispering. The whispering started to become more understandable over time. We found out that it is actually calling our names. We both gathered up some courage, and decided to go investigate. Once we got up, the whispering stopped. So, we both started checking rooms to see if we could get it to start making noises again. But, we didn't get anything.
Later that night, while I was asleep, I had a really weird dream. In the dream, I was talking to an old man. The old man was talking about creatures that fell from heaven, and these creatures would bring everyone down with them at the time of their destruction. Then, I woke up. It was about 3:00 in the morning. I had a very unsettling feeling in my stomach. (Note that I'm still at my friend's house, and I am sleeping on the living-room couch.) As I looked into the hallway, I saw red eyes staring at me. In the blink of an eye, they are gone. That really scared me, so I decided to watch T.V. Until Zack woke up, when I would tell him what happened. After that, nothing really happened to me for a while.
A couple years later, weird things started happening again. I started seeing apparitions, hearing noises and feeling things. I also started to go into sleep paralysis.
One night, I wake up around 3:30 in the morning. I couldn't move or speak. I saw a dark figure appearing right next to me. It comes closer and told me something that is really weird. It said that they have tricked all humans into believing that there are actual beings that continue on after a person's death. It also told me that it will bring everyone down with it when the time comes.
I'm not a religious person, but I decided to read some of my bible after that experience. I looked at Ecclesiastes 9:5, "For the dead are conscious of nothing at all".
Ever since then, nothing else has happened to me. But it makes me think, when we are experiencing something we may think is paranormal, is it really the happenings of a ghost?
